Broadcast TV antenna and transmitter manufacturers’ exhibits at the 2017 NAB Show were as packed as I’d seen since the DTV build-out a decade ago.
With the end of the FCC’s spectrum auction in January, it’s time to measure its damaging effects on broadcasters.
The FCC has released the Auction Closing and Channel Reassignment Public Notice and files showing auction results, including stations that gave up their spectrum and those being repacked to another channel.
As I write this, Stage 4 of the reverse auction has ended and it appears likely the UHF broadcast TV band will be reduced to Channels 14–36 (470– 608 MHz).
This month I’m continuing my coverage of the 2016 IEEE Broadcast Symposium, with a focus on presentations about ATSC 3.0 and the transition from ATSC 1.0 to ATSC 3.0.
I first attended the IEEE Broadcast Symposium 20 years ago when it was held at the Hotel Washington and it remains the “must attend” event of the fall conference schedule.
This month I decided to take a break from talking about TV transmission to focus on TV reception.
In the past, I have written about out-of-band (OOB) interference between ATSC signals in different bands: the low VHF band into a high VHF channel and a high VHF band ATSC into a UHF channel.
The FCC’s incentive auction is underway. Broadcasters have placed their bids to give up spectrum in the reverse auction and by the time you read this the forward auction should be under way.
Many stations will replace transmitters, RF systems, line and antennas as part of the channel repack after the incentive auction and it makes sense to select gear that will work for ATSC 3.0.
